Police say that a woman was punched in the mouth by a man who broke into her home Monday.

The woman said the man entered her garage on the 1400 block of Ledge Rock Terrace while she was in it. The man walked up to her and punched her, police said.  He then left the area.

Responding officers followed the man's footprints to a wooded area behind the townhomes on Territory Tr. K-9 units were called out to track the footprints, which led to a storage facility on the 4900 block of List Dr.

Police said that evidence showed the suspect entered the passenger side of a car, then left the area in that car.

The suspect is described as an older white man, 5'11" and around 170 lbs. He was wearing a blue-hooded jacket and green pants.

Police do not believe the man was armed with any weapons.
